Deep Elem, Althea, and TMNS - lyrical blunders and all - shine from the first set. Otherwise, unremarkable first. Weird mix. Takes some time to get settled in, Brent really high- too high- in mix, tbh, and seems generally out of whack. Another speedy Tower. Sailor->St. is excellent with cool Supplication Jam.

Des Moines 81'
This isn't one of the best of 81' but it's a pretty decent show .I wish Jerry was more dominant in the mix but hey.Highlights for me are TMNS and the second half of set 2 starting with Saint of Circumstance.
